A visual treat.
13 September 2004 | by (Heraganahalli, India) – See all my reviews

Two things that stand out are Cinematography by Radhu Karmarkar, this is probably the most astounding Cinematography I have seen in an Indian movie other than "Sangam". Then there are the most gorgeous sets ever seen in an Indian Film (Rangaraj). This was one of the last movie's by the venerable Raj Kapoor, who wanted to paint a love story on a rich Canvas. His let down is the Cast, Rishi Kapoor was probably a better actor in his later years, here is a flop with no Screen presence, where as Padmini Kholapure is mediocre with very mechanical motion in her dance numbers. There are too many characters with too many lines and very few to make any impact. This is the only Raj Kapoor movie that I had to fast-wind ever. Other mainstay of his movies was the music by the Maestro's of melody, Shankar-Jaikishan, which is obviously lacking by their absence. The Raj Kapoor magic for some reason was lost in this otherwise a Cinematographical masterpiece and a Visual treat.
